Have done as suggested; took carb apart, soaked in 1 gal bucket container of carb cleaner (from Advance Auto) for approx. 24 hours, then cleaned it with spray carb cleaner, blew it out with compressed air,reassembled all, and re-installed carb.

Intially, it seemed that this had improved things; I fiddled with the two adjustment screws. Then ,it started to hunt again, exactly as before.

BTW, I have also sprayed about half a can of PB Blaster on the near pivot to the governor (as well as the far pivot, near the throddle linkage).

Where should I go now?

As I posted before, The common problem with governor linkage is not need of PB blaster, but the opposite. The holes and connections get overly loose and the spring can get slack. Your owner's manual should give you instructions on adjustment but here it is very basically: Disconnect the rod from the governor arm to the carb, open throttle butterfly fully, set the throttle to full, position the rod end next to the throttle arm of the carb. The rod from the governor to the carb should be in the exact position to slip together. If not, you need to adjust the length of the rod to where they will slip together.
